whoa. my introverted soul is freaking out right now. ok, not really. but, i did sleep until 8:30 this morning (unheard-of for me!) and haven’t gotten out of my pjs all day.
why, you wonder? because i have been super social this week. and i have neeeeeded some downtime today. which i’ve gotten.
but, i wanna share with you how my week was. all of the fun i had. now, mind you, i didn’t take many photos because i was so busy soaking up the moments, enjoying all of the people i was around, and generally living life! poor me, huh?
and, you know, it felt pretty good to just live and be wrapped up in the moment so much so that i wasn’t thinking of anything else. yes, there were 5 long, intense workdays. and then, quite a few very late nights making the long days even longer. but i am so very grateful for this crazy, adventure-filled week.
so, here are my top 5 social moments of the week:
// a workday at school on monday. no students for an entire day meant that i’d be able to get a ton of work done. buuuuut, instead, i had student come to do a bunch of catch-up work with me for 3 and a half hours during the day. she worked her ass off, and i didn’t get shit done. but it was totally worth it.
// tuesday night in stockholm. i hopped on a train right after work with my love and we headed to dinner with a friend, and then a concert with another friend. lina and i ended up finding a little hippo corner over the stage, where we danced, laughed, and hung out with fellow hippie strangers. so cool.
// after a long, tough day on thursday, i spent about an hour out in the sun in the backyard drinking wine and reading. perfect.
// weekend!!! saturday we were full booked. first up, a birthday lunch for a good friend at his favorite burger place in another city with a bunch of our friends, i looked around at one point, as we sipped cold beers and devoured our burgers, and just gave thanks.
// and then a cozy dinner with two other couples, lina’s cousin and her guy, plus two of their friends. yummy food. laughter. record playing. good shit.
of course i had a few moments of solitude, meditation, and time alone spread out throughout the week. i’d never have made it without those recharging, balancing moments… and it may not sound like i was super busy all week to you. but, to me it was a lot. a lot of goodness and a lot of joy. however, i also know myself, and i knew that today, sunday, would be the perfect day to reset my soul. to listen and just be.
and, seriously, no matter how tired or exhausted i was, how lucky and blessed am i?!
how was your week, my friends? did you stay busy, or did you have a lot of time for yourself? or was it a good balance of it all?
here’s to hoping that you are not experiencing sunday anxiety right now, but instead enjoying exactly where you are + whatever you are doing. i know i sure am. thanks, for reading, guys. happy new week!
